President's Welcome

Gratitude. That is the first word that came to mind when thinking about what message to write about in my first letter as president of HFMA Maryland Chapter 2022-2023 fiscal year.

Gratitude for Linker Mills, outgoing president and Jeanette Cross, past-president before Linker, who led us during the very challenging years of a COVID pandemic.

Gratitude for the seven women presidents that came before me allowing me to be the 8 th woman President in the 58-year history of HFMA Maryland Chapter as well as the many male presidents that have led and supported our chapter.

Gratitude for our new 22-23 officers: President-Elect-Brian Sims, Vice President/Program ChairArin Foreman, Secretary-Katie Eckert and Treasurer-Lauren Rose Shea.

Gratitude for our 22-23 directors and associate directors: Khalida Burton, Matt Beitman, Amy Hardesty, Jay Wagner, Scott Wuenschell, Marco Priolo and Amanda Rocker as well as our many committee chairs and co-chairs.

Gratitude for the benefits that the HFMA Maryland Chapter and its many volunteers have done to enhance the careers of so many of us professionals in the Maryland healthcare industry.

Gratitude for the education and certification benefits of an HFMA enterprise membership that allow more front line healthcare employees to benefit from HFMA who may not otherwise have ever gotten to attend an HFMA education session.

Gratitude for our networking opportunities that HFMA provides for both in person and in the virtual environment.

Gratitude for the new equipment that we just purchased that will allow us to have more hybrid education events again allowing more employees to benefit from HFMA using a virtual platform.

Gratitude for our sponsors who make all of these many benefits possible.

So it is with much gratitude that I step into the President's role for the 2022-2023 fiscal year and I look forward to working alongside each of you to continue serving the HFMA Maryland Chapter.
